If You're In New York Tonight, Come Hear Some Splendid Writers Talk About Their Favorite Nearly Great Baseball Players

This month's edition of Gelf's terrific Varsity Letters reading series is tonight, with a great lineup of baseball writers reading from their essays in the Hall of Nearly Great e-book. You want Craig Fehrman? You got him! How about David Roth of The Classical, Marc Normandin of SB Nation, and Emma Span of Sports on Earth? You got 'em! And Gelf threw in some bumpkin movie critic, Will Leitch, for good measure. The reading is tonight, 7:30, at Le Poisson Rouge in downtown Manhattan, and it's free! Go! [Gelf]
